Thanks Mr. Sunil for suggesting the configuration. Although AMD CPU is good, but my preference is for Intel CPU. May you suggest the Intel I5 CPU and supporting Mobo. My Budget can be expanded for the same.

Intel 8th gen non-k processors does not have non-oc motherboards but still needs to be added with Z370 motherboards. And AMD Ryzen 5 is much more better in price to performance ratio than Intel 8th gen processors.
Since the iGPU of Intel 8th gen is much worse than Ryzen 5 which is equal to nvidia GT 1030 and due to mining craze all GPU prices have skyrocketed. So better postpone any GPU purchase as of now and go with Ryzen 5 APU.
